I'd like to see them as well, but coming from bmw performance exhaust... I think I'll feel gains no matter what., I'd be surprised if it wasnt ~10-15hp.

Here's a question.... I have the BMW performance muffler. I was under the impression that the pipes have to be cut to install it, but Im really not sure. For me to get this would I have to do the stage 2? I am really confused by the whole cutting thing and am not sure if I can take the BMW perf muffler off and put another axle back in its place.

Basically what you effectively have if you did do the cutting is you already have something similar to what the stage2 bits are. (cutting removes rear resonators... you have stock front bits of the catback which actually contains cats, and then the new section where old resonators were.) If cut in the right places and your bmw performance is decently flush with the rear of the car, you can buy the axel back and leave the cut and connceted bits up. Thats what I plan on doing with mine.

stage 0 and bmw's "midpipes" will be different in that you'll have the rear cats in place. AFAIK if you arent going downpipes route, leaving the 2 cats in the midpipes isnt going to affect performance much.

Seems like the Carbon Fiber thread is getting a lot more love than this one is.

Just like everyone else I am waiting for dyno results, and update on the group buy, (Im assuming it is closed?) and additional info on when the units will ship out.

I dont know if I would pull the trigger just yet... they havent responded to ANY of my calls yet, or emails or private messages... I am sure theres probably a decent explanation...

Too bad if not... I'd still rather wait and have that exhaust sounding exactly as it did in the videos.

I just thought I'd let everyone know that iCARBON is back in full force now as they were out of town last week. Their service has been top notch and if you have any questions just send them a message.

Also, whats a good comparison on loudness, I know you said no drone on the highway, but am I going to have a hard time trying to drive it quiet to get out of my neighborhood?
